It wasn’t very crowded mid-morning on a Friday in March

 

 

We visited my family in New York this past weekend and had a great time!

We tried driving at bedtime this time around, and it was a thing of glory. Baby C slept the whole way in both directions, and F slept for all but maybe two hours.  I had a long conversation with my husband! Twice in one week!

I’ve been wanting to see High Line Park in NYC ever since I first heard of it. It’s been mentioned in a couple of TED talks – Robert Hammond’s and Amanda Burden’s. Then on a whim a few weeks ago, I took this book out of the library to find out more.

We decided to go for it on Friday because the weather was nice. We went to the northernmost section because it was most convenient for us.

It was great! F loved it too. Baby C slept the whole time. 🙂

I want to go back someday soon to see more of the park itself and to see it in a different season.
